Tracking bills of other currencies - the definitive guide (probably)

Post by Montgomery Burns »

There are countless references to other tracking sites in our forum, but I don't think there has been a thread that lists them thoroughly. Well, I hope to achieve that here.

Starting points: EBT links page * Bill tracking on Wikipedia (Eng.)

I've sorted the sites by continent and alphabetically (when applicable, I've provided links to English-language threads concerning specific sites):

Asia

Message in a Bill - Image JPY/Yen - www.msg-bill.com

Europe

Grn Trip - Image UAH/Hryvnia - www.grn-trip.com
Roobex - Image RUB/Ruble - www.roobex.ru

North America

Where's George - Image USD/Dollar - www.wheresgeorge.com
Where's Willy - Image CAD/Dollar - www.whereswilly.com

Oceania

Money Tracker - Image AUD/Dollar - www.moneytracker.com.au


Other options (I'd recommend using the sites listed previously as they have larger user-bases, but I feel I should also mention these):

Canadian Money Tracker - Image CAD/Dollar - www.cdn-money.ca
Track Dollar - Image USD/Dollar - www.trackdollar.com

Inactive or defunct:

www.currencypath.com - An ambitious tracking project which had a number of "ups and downs" before going offline indefinitely.

www.wheresmymoola.co.za - South African rand notes could be tracked here. The URL has been acquired for other purposes.

www.osatsu.net - A tracking site for Japanese yen bills once lived here.
www.trackgandhi.com - This domain was registered with the intention of tracking Indian rupee notes, but it had a very short existence.
www.wheresnt.com * www.wheresrenminbi.com - These two "Wheres" sites are gone, leaving us with fewer tracking opportunities in Asia (Taiwanese dollar and Chinese yuan bilss).

www.cashfollow.ch - A former site for tracking Swiss franc notes which had a long existence. The URL has been acquired for a new purpose.
www.cupura.ru - The first Russian ruble bill tracking site.
www.doshtracker.co.uk - Another site (pound notes) with a checkered history. The site is up, but is not functional after a major problem in 2018.
www.findlizzy.co.uk - This site had a decently-sized userbase of British pound trackers, but that, sadly, did not stop its demise.
www.kovesdapenzed.hr - Hungarian forint users.
www.moja-lova.com - The first Croatian kuna notes tracker.
www.sek-tracker.se - The original Swedish krona bills tracker. The site is still up, but only seems to contain information about the project.
www.sedlarna.se - Another old tracking site for krona users.

www.ontabenito.com - A Mexican peso bill tracker. Their site is occasionally down, but usually comes back up within days.

Where's Your Money is not just for pounds. They also deal with other currencies, at least euros and dollars.

I did find that site in my searches. I opted not to list it, partly because users there have the habit of posting pictures of notes - upon further inspection, it seems they're careful about not showing serial numbers - but mostly because I made the choice of not listing any other site for euros. I've seen it happen in the past, it can be... complicated.

I just linked to this thread on Reddit, because someone asked "What is a hobby you can get into for almost no money?"

Ooh, interesting. Well played! :) Although with 18, 000+ comments at the moment, I fear that comment is hopelessly lost. :lol:

Also, let me just mention another minor update to the thread. Added a few forum links, changed the ruble tracker (they keep dying and coming back).

Still possible to enter notes. But there are less than ~10 active trackers :-(

Thanks for that. I will put it back in Europe's list. Or I will change the name of the last list to "Inactive, defunct or defective". :lol:

Update:

* added a couple of notes about one or two sites.
* changed the ruble tracking site back to Roobex because it seems to be working consistently again, and has the largest user-base of this currency.

Thanks for this. I've decided to include a short list called "Other options" because I feel sites that have been around for a long time - such as Track Dollar or Cdn. Money Tracker - deserve a mention, even if they don't have the largest user-bases.
